Among the announced reforms by the regime will consist “the Character of null dismissal” to protect the women during pregnancy, indicated the last week the Minister for Industrial Relations, Carlos Marx Carrasco.
He also announced that the fixed-term contracts will be proposed to terminate, thus establishing that all contracts be indefinite.
Another of the observations to the existing legislation would focus on unpaid work done at home, whose background would protect the housewife with social security.
